Chet Baker: The Best of Chet Baker Sings



Chet Baker’s singing dominates the attention of listeners on this 20-track compilation of mid-1950’s Pacific Jazz recordings. His mellow, open, bright but not brash trumpet tone and earnest, steady, reticent vocal style earned him praise and popularity beyond the jazz world. This period marked the beginning of his rise to fame, and he sounds youthful and in near peak form throughout. The many standout performances include “My Funny Valentine”, “Time After Time” and Let’s Get Lost”. Total Time: 64 minutes
